Logo Use and Recognition

Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, Cultural Resources Logos

The North Carolina Arts Council is the steward of state and federal tax-supported public funds for the arts. In acknowledging the Arts Council’s role in your event or project you are recognizing the part that public funds play in promoting the arts.

The Arts Council logo, seen here, must be prominently displayed on-site and in all publicity and printed materials. You are welcome to display the NEA logo at any time, but if the source of funds on your grant says “federal funds,” you must display the NEA logo.

Press Release and Printed Materials Boilerplate

Sample Press Release

pdf .pdf (download)

The boilerplate below can be used to describe the North Carolina Arts Council in many formats, such as in printed programs and signage. This statement should be used at the end of press releases and in other printed materials for any program or project that is supported with funds from the North Carolina Arts Council. When you write your press release, add a similar paragraph about your group at the end. Media professionals are accustomed to seeing two such paragraphs at the end of any news release discussing a joint effort between two organizations.

The North Carolina Arts Council works to make North Carolina The Creative State where a robust arts industry produces a creative economy, vibrant communities, children prepared for the 21st century and lives filled with discovery and learning. The Arts Council accomplishes this in partnership with artists and arts organizations, other organizations that use the arts to make their communities stronger and North Carolinians—young and old—who enjoy and participate in the arts. The Arts Council is a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
